    The facts dont lie. Without steroids Jones isnt an exciting fighter. His fights are uneventful and nothing anyone should plan around. Its the type of fight you watch highlights of on ESPN and nod your head as if you expected this all along.

    The OSP fight was terrible. Then he fought DC a second time and won by TKO but he tested positive for steroids and his win was overturned. Fast forward to the Gus fight which was a snoozer even though Jones won by TKO. Watching the fight up until that point felt like watching paint dry. The fight against Anthony Smith was a snoozer as well where we watched Jones lay on a journeyman MW for 5 rounds while being unable to finish him or do any significant damage. Then we have the fight with Santos where Juice Jones is fighting another MW journeyman who got TKOd by the likes of David Branch who BLOWS HIS KNEE OUT IN THE FIRST ROUND and Jones still cant finish this guy and puts on a SNOOZER again where he does nothing for 5 rounds and even runs away in the closing seconds. One could even argue that he lost rounds 1,2 and 5. Truly lackluster and unexciting.

    Jones is by FAR the most boring champion in the sport since GSP got neutered by Serra and went on his blanket run. After such uneventful performances against a washed up Gus and two MW journeymen, its hard to imagine that anyone cares about watching another Jon Jones fight. Add that to the fact this man tested positive 3x and refuses to fight at HW even though hes bigger than Arlovski and you have someone who doesnt deserve to be called the GOAT. You have someone Dana White describes as a "Sport Killer."

    To be the GOAT means you are a MUST WATCH fighter who is dominant AND brings exciting moments in the cage/ ring. Jones isnt that hasnt been that for a long time. Probably since the OSP fight because thats where he couldnt use steroids anymore. The UFC fanboys need to accept this fact that Jones is not the GOAT and Jon Jones is not an exciting fighter.

    Excitement has never, and should never be a factor when ranking all-time greats. It's a silly and entirely subjective criteria that cannot be objectively judged.

    I do agree that Jones is not the GOAT, but for completely different reasons.

    1. His level of competition is lacking when compared to GSP (the obvious GOAT)
    2. He's a steroid cheat

    Guess that rules out GSP then. His fans will dispute the hell out of this criteria, because he'd be at the bottom based on this.

    Exciting fights =/= GOATness

    I'm on board with any reason to trash Jones, though

    What does this thread have to do with anything?

    Jones gets defended all the time. Joe Rogan on his podcast literally said he thinks Jones never took steroids in his life.

    Dana White sweeps every Jones violation under the rug. Moves a whole event from Vegas to LA because Jones got caught with steroids for a 3rd time and Nevada refused to sanction him.

    The countless fans of his trash other fighters and legends of the sport while completely dismissing Jones steroid busts.

    The list goes on..

    The fact that GSP as a champion actually tapped to strikes is what rules him out:

    That and also how he decided to "retire" after he got beat up by Hendricks

    Lol at being the GOAT in a 30 y.o. sport, why it matters?

    Basically the history of MMA is writing right now in front of our eyes.

    With 5-10 good wins you're already in discussion.

    As a wise man once said: "Naaaah, fuck that."

    For Joe Rogan there is a new GOAT with every event.

    First he cried and said Ronda was the GOAT and a once in a life time athlete.

    Then Holly KTFOd Ronda and Holly was the GOAT because of her run in boxing and MMA.

    Then Holly got beat by Tate and Tate was the GOAT.

    Then Cyborg came and Cyborg was the GOAt.

    Then Amanda KOs Cyborg and shes the GOAT.


    Rogan is a huge marketing tool for the UFC because they know people hang on everything he says and he shills hard for them.

    He literally said he thinks Jones never took steroids LOL
